  1. 1. Development of New Monte Carlo Methods in Reactor Physics : Criticality, Non-Linear Steady-State and Burnup Problems

    Author : Jan Dufek; Jan Wallenius; Waclaw Gudowski; Cheikh Diop; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Monte Carlo; reactor physics; fission source; inactive cycles; convergence; burnup; steady-state; criticality; eigenvalue; Nuclear physics; Kärnfysik;

    Abstract : The Monte Carlo method is, practically, the only approach capable of giving detail insight into complex neutron transport problems. In reactor physics, the method has been used mainly for determining the keff in criticality calculations. READ MORE

  2. 2. Computational Aspects of Lévy-Driven SPDE Approximations

    Author : Andreas Petersson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; multilevel Monte Carlo; numerical approximation of stochastic differential equations; multiplicative noise; Lévy processes; finite element method; variance redons; Monte Carlo; weak convergence; Lévy processes;

    Abstract : In order to simulate solutions to stochastic partial differential equations (SPDE) they must be approximated in space and time. In this thesis such fully discrete approximations are considered, with an emphasis on finite element methods combined with rational semigroup approximations. There are several notions of the error resulting from this. READ MORE

  3. 3. Accelerating Monte Carlo methods for Bayesian inference in dynamical models

    Author : Johan Dahlin; Thomas B. Schön; Fredrik Lindsten; Richard Everitt; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Computational statistics; Monte Carlo; Markov chains; Particle filters; Machine learning; Bayesian optimisation; Approximate Bayesian Computations; Gaussian processes; Particle Metropolis-Hastings; Approximate inference; Pseudo-marginal methods;

    Abstract : Making decisions and predictions from noisy observations are two important and challenging problems in many areas of society. Some examples of applications are recommendation systems for online shopping and streaming services, connecting genes with certain diseases and modelling climate change. READ MORE

  4. 4. Charge Transport Simulations for Organic Electronics : A Kinetic Monte Carlo Approach

    Author : Riccardo Volpi; Mathieu Linares; Sven Stafström; Martijn Kemerink; Linköpings universitet; []

    Abstract : In this thesis we focus on the modelling and simulation of organic electronic devices, investigating their structural and electronic properties. Organic devices have attracted great interest for their innovative properties, but their functioning still represent a theoretical and technological challenge. READ MORE

  5. 5. Approximating Stochastic Partial Differential Equations with Finite Elements: Computation and Analysis

    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Lévy process; Lyapunov equation; white noise; finite element method; multilevel Monte Carlo; Monte Carlo; multiplicative noise; asymptotic mean square stability; stochastic heat equation; covariance operator; weak convergence; generalized Wiener process; numerical approximation; stochastic wave equation; Stochastic partial differential equations;

    Abstract : Stochastic partial differential equations (SPDE) must be approximated in space and time to allow for the simulation of their solutions. In this thesis fully discrete approximations of such equations are considered, with an emphasis on finite element methods combined with rational semigroup approximations. READ MORE
